Roo has been a Scooby Doo fan for as long as I can remember, watching the TV series and having fun with the Mystery Machine van that she received one Christmas. Tigger has also started to fall under the Scooby Doo spell with a selection of Scooby Doo mysteries on DVD which Daddy seems to treat him too whenever we all visit the supermarket. So you can imagine the look on their faces when they came home one day after school to find the Scooby Doo Mystery Mansion playset & figures waiting for them.
Scooby Doo Mystery Mansion Playset
Lots of Scooby Doo adventures are based around a spooky house so it is great to see that you can now purchase the Scooby Doo Mystery Mansion playset. The playset comes complete with a poseable Scooby Doo figure and enables your little ones to create their own mysteries around the mystery mansion and see what booby traps lay ahead for them.
Hidden throughout the playset is a selection of booby traps and surprises to enjoy and make the Scooby Doo characters jump.
A warm welcome | Step on the loose step and the front doors clatter and bang open!
The ghoul in the cellar | Watch out! Go near the trap door and a ghoul will reach out from his hiding place to scare you!
Under the stairs | Walk carefully up the stairs otherwise you’ll be surprised by a sudden movement below your feet!
Danger above | Mind the loose chandelier doesn’t drop on you!
Mirror of fate | Don’t lean on the mirror! It’ll release the trapdoor underneath you!
Battlement blast | There’s a cannon in the roof, keep out of range of its spring-loaded barrage or better still use it against the grizzly ghouls!
Scooby Doo Mystery Solving Crew Action Figures 5 Pack
To make any playset complete having all the figures on hand will make role-playing so much easier, especially if there is more than one child playing. The Scooby Doo Mystery Solving Crew Action Figures 5 Pack contains all the key Scooby Doo characters of Scooby Doo, Shaggy, Daphne, Fred and Velma. Standing at 5″ tall they are a good size for little hands as well as being poseable they can be moved into different positions allowing them to be played with in different ways.
Boo Roo and Tigger Too’s thoughts…
Both Roo and Tigger were excited to see the Scooby Doo Mystery Mansion playset, they have the Mystery Machine van but having never seen a spooky house available they were thrilled. I initially wondered whether they would be disappointed with the figure pack as it doesn’t contain any villains however it was a great combination to go with the Mystery Mansion with all the hidden trap doors and monsters.
Aimed at children aged 3+ I can see this being a big hit for any Scooby Doo fan although for little hands it might become frustrating to having to keep clicking the stairs, chandelier and upstairs window in place – Thankfully Roo was on hand to add these features back in for Tigger.
